I've been enjoying Project Greenlight this season.  Most specifically all of the dogs that one of the Farrelly brothers has at his house.   Anyway the guy keeps pushing for film which I respect, although I think in the context of the project there is nothing that specifically demands film.  But do they really not have the budget for even Super 16?  I find that pretty hard to believe.  I've seen a number of indie movies with similar budgets that managed to shoot film, why not this project for HBO?  I realize that it may just be manufactured tension.  As a 2nd question, what would it really cost to shoot film on a project like this?

 

I do super 8 at weddings so I really have no idea.  :-)

I wrote a long diatribe about this subject few weeks ago. It details film production cost over digital.

DMTs now demand $5000.00 a day, might as well shoot film.
